The Eugene Mission Downsizes

OPB | Aug. 8, 2013 12:20 p.m. | Updated: Sept. 11, 2013 1:17 a.m.

In an effort to better serve its current population, the Eugene Mission has cut beds in its men’s shelter and its mothers and children’s center. The Mission had been serving over 500 people a night, which put a heavy strain on its 22 full-time staff. The Mission is also introducing a new Life Change program, which will help residents deal with the root causes that led to their current problems.

We’ll hear how the changes have affected Eugene’s homeless population, and what other options are available to people experiencing homelessness in Eugene.
